BC’s Uncorked Wine & Food Festival has come and gone faster than we could begin to absorb. We had the opportunity of hosting a few guests during this time. We took a few hours to experience this awesome biannual event, held at nearby Heritage Mountain Secondary School in Port Moody.
As for what’s local:
Township 7 prides itself on being Old World inspired but nestled in South Langley in the Fraser Valley. Close to the city but nestled in the foothills of where wine country begins on the westcoast. For those looking for a solid merlot packed with a punch of spiciness, you will come to expect the flavors you find from this provider. Why mess with a good thing right? Once the science is perfected, it comes down to pulling some friends together and borrowing a patio preferably on a wine tour of this area.
If you’re into white wines, this is your stop. Local and devoted to fruity notes, this vineyard definitely has the formula down for fulfilling the sweet tooth palate. Their Siegerrebe 2015 was enjoyed by all as it wasn’t too too sweet but still packed a passion fruit freshness that a quality white can only offer.
Backyard lives up to their name in every way. When it’s patio season, that’s where you want to hang out. And what better way to do it with their sweet complimentary 2014 Riesling or 2013 Nosey Neighbor Red. Known for their local and international recognition on the flavor front, Backyard has won over 50 medals for a variety of what they have in their backyard. We highly recommend touring this vineyard if you plan to make a trip to our area.
As patio season heats up, we can almost guarantee you’ll want to reserve your spot in a local wine tour and refresh your palate with something from the Backyard, Chaberton, or Township 7 for a west coast vintage or two.
Please let us know in advance before your arrival to the area if you plan to partake and we can definitely help accommodate the set up of a personalized tour for you and your travel guests.
